At the invitation of Royal Academy of Cambodia (RAC), Prof. Rajendra Shrestha and Dr. Nophea Sasaki visited Phnom Penh on May 27-28, 2016 to promote the AIT educational and research activities and to strengthen research collaboration between AIT and institutions in Cambodia. In addition to introducing AIT’s education and research excellence, we discussed the possibility of having a unified-degree, dual-degree, joint-degree, and two-stage degree programs with top private universities in Cambodia. These universities include Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia (PUC), Phnom Penh International University (PPIU), and Asia-Europe University.
